DJ Cuppy, the renowned disc jockey and daughter of Nigerian billionaire Femi Otedola, has spoken candidly about her recent engagement and subsequent breakup with Ryan Taylor.
Gatekeepers News reports that Cuppy opened up during a Women in Management, Business, and Public Service (WIMBIZ) conference in London.
In December 2022, Cuppy confirmed her relationship with Taylor after a viral video suggested a marriage proposal. She revealed they got engaged after 25 days of knowing each other.
However, rumours of a breakup emerged on July 15 when the couple unfollowed each other on social media.
Cuppy acknowledged the unpredictability of her life, sharing setbacks like her failed jewellery line and academic challenges at Oxford.
Despite the ended engagement, she expressed optimism about the future, emphasizing her acceptance of life’s uncertainties.
“Now I can stand here and tell you how unpredictable my life has been despite being from a privileged background,” she said.
“Whether it is my failed jewellery line which I did at 28 years old, or going to University of Oxford at 29 and almost failing class.
“Perhaps a cherry on top, last year I got engaged and I am no longer engaged but such is life and I know my story is still happening and there is more to come and I am okay with the uncertainties.”
Florence Ifeoluwa Otedola or DJ Cuppy as she is popularly known, began her career in 2014 as the resident DJ at the MTV Africa Music Awards.
Cuppy, known for hits like ‘Gelato’ and ‘Jollof on the Jet,’ discussed various aspects of her life journey at the conference.
